In a post on the page, the family said his sudden death had been a devastating shock.
The post said: “On December 16 our beloved Norrie grew his wings in the early hours which was a shock to us all and unexpected. He will be truly missed by family and friends.
“We would like to ask for a small donation towards Norrie’s funeral as it was so sudden.
“Unfortunately we do not have the funds at this time of year and are trying to help Nikki and family as much as possible as they have five kids each, so a small donation would help a lot.”
Norrie was described as a keen gardener that had a smile that would “cheer anyone up”.
A number of Tele readers took to social media to pass on well wishes to the family.
One woman wrote: “RIP Norrie, my thoughts are with Nikki and the kids at this sad time.”
While another man said he would “really be missed”.
